Thirteen people, including a 3-year-old boy who suffered a gunshot wound to the head, were shot at a Chicago park in the Back of the Yards neighborhood Thursday night, authorities said.

Ten adults and the 3-year-old were transported by Fire Department ambulances after the attack in the 1800 block of West 51st Street in the Back of the Yards neighborhood, said Fire Department Deputy District Chief James Mungovan at the scene. A 12th victim was believed to have driven himself to Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park, a source said, citing preliminary information.

Police said later a total of 13 people were shot, the boy, two teens, and 10 adults, with the boy the most seriously wounded. The boy suffered a gunshot wound to the head at an ear that exited through his mouth, and was in critical condition at Mount Sinai Hospital, police said.

...

Chicago police were making no information about what happened public, except to say that the shooting appeared to be gang-related. The shootings took place on a basketball court on the 51st Street side of Cornell Square Park near Wood Street.

So the ear exiting his mouth wounded him? Gotta love how well those Chicago gun control laws are working!

Don’t be a racist know-it-all.

It’s just a cultural thing that outsiders wouldn’t understand

Because we have a welfare system that rewards teen girls without HS degrees who have babies out of wedlock. By what crazy calculus would anyone think a teen girl would make a good mom?

Black shooter(s)? No MSM coverage to be expected.

Nothing to see here, move along.

You missed the point.

The :news: is not that that many people got killed this weekend.

The “point” is that it’s being shoved right in front of your face, that the media is going to do whatever it takes to demonize guns.

It seems to be on a massive scale now. Pretty much constant reports of (gun violence/global warming).

Who benefits? Cui bono?
Answer that question, and you have the answer.

Interesting there’s nothing in the news about this.....whereas the shooting at the Navy Yard and Sandy Hook, and CO, it was wall to wall non-stop tv coverage.

Chicago....gun free zone. Nothing to see here folks?
